We spent 21 hours on research, videography, and editing, to review the top options for this wiki. Even if you're not gaming at Ultra HD resolutions, the best-looking panels available are all built with over 33 million pixels. And if you're running a flagship console or enthusiast-level PC, you'll need all of those to take advantage of your powerful GPU. The right TV can take your gaming experience to the next level, whether you're chugging along at 4K or even the more modest 1080p. When users buy our independently chosen editorial picks, we may earn commissions to support our work. Skip to the best 4k tv for gaming on Amazon.

Editor's Notes

December 18, 2018:

Samsung, Samsung, Samsung. Normally we avoid stumping for a single brand, but when it comes to games, their QLED TVs are really, really hard to beat. Their eye-popping color isn't always perfectly aligned to live-action movies, but pixel- and polygon-driven experiences seriously benefit from quantum-dot filtering. Plus, Samsung just recently made their top lines compatible with AMD's FreeSync adaptive refresh feature. If you can't afford the top-level Samsungs, though (and not many people can), TCL makes a couple excellent models, and even LG's OLED is of a comparable or lower price than the QLEDs. Sceptre makes dirt-cheap 55-incher, but some people feel like poorly known companies like that are a bit of a gamble. Sony, naturally, recommends its own TVs for the PS4, and to be honest, they do look fantastic, although they are bit expensive.
